Well so far the year has started really well – I had a last minute invitation to a New Year’s Eve party very close to the Sydney Harbour Bridge with friends up from Melbourne. It gave a great chance to get up close and personal with the awesome fireworks display … Sadly the friends are moving shortly so it’ll be the last time – but it was a really great way to kick off the new year getting to bed finally at 4.30am!
I was feeling decidedly seedy on the morning trip home so opted to walk a couple of extra kilometres instead of catching the bus – it gave me some much needed fresh air and exercise and I enjoyed the beach walk immensely 🙂
Then in between sleeping the day away I managed to kick start my stitching plans and achieved very small starts on all my projects:
First up the Mirabilia SAL:
Then the first 3 days of the Crazy 7 (7 new starts in 7 days):
I also started my first Christmas ornament for an ornie SAL on 1 Jan then finished it off today for my first finish of the year.

Sadly it’s back to work again tomorrow so my stitching will no doubt slow up again – but I want to get back into the habit of stitching most days/nights even if it’s just for a few minutes. Having some gorgeous new projects to work on will keep the motivation up I think 🙂

That ornament is so lovely and your stitches are just the neatest I’ve ever seen! It looks like you’re all set for a very productive 2016 🙂
Lovely finish and your other projects all look stunning so far.
Congrats on your first finish of the year! The ornament is very pretty.
